Northern Lights is a pure indica strain that was largely propagated out of the Netherlands by Sensi Seeds. Northern Lights has been crossed with multiple strains to create many of the best hybrids. It is the winner of the most cannabis awards world wide.
A small plant averaging between 1 and 1.5 metres, Northern Lights has dense, resin-rich flowers and wide-fingered indica leaves. The aroma is pungently sweet and the taste is a flavorful mixture of sweet and spicy. Northern Lights’ fame extends to the harvest festivals where it claimed the overall High Times Cannabis Cup win in 1990, and the Cup’s award for the pure Indica category in 1988-89.
